Thanks Lance and BigRepp for the help, but I don't have the best news...
When I went to start the bike on my way home from work, I noticed that the heads up display was not lighting up, ie: the nuetral light and oil light where not lighting up with the ignition in the "on" position, but thankfully the engine started as usual, and I naively played this off as a purely electrical problem. However, the highway near my home has a long, gradual climb up a ridge and while riding up this ridge, in 4th gear (maybe 3rd, but I don't think the RPM's where that high) and at approximately 40 mph the bike lost power, it felt like it was missing, but it continued to run at appoximately 50% power, I was in traffic so shifted down because I wanted to maintain speed, I regained speed, shifted back up and rode as slowly as safely possible to my home, once there...
I realized in addition to my tachometer/temp gauge and oil warning and neutral light being out, my front headlight, as well as my bright headlight and standard headlight indicators on the HUD were out, but both turn signals and turn signal indicators on the HUD are working.
I checked battery wiring and grounding, fuses, wiring under both side covers and in the headlight bay and found nothing...
Welcome to the forum km. Too bad it is bike problems that bring you here though. We will have to use your full nickname or always lowercase km, to avoid mixing you up with a long time member who is a regular poster here. He goes by the name of KnifeMaker, sometimes abreviated to KM (upper case). .
Have you pulled off the seat and checked the voltage is ~13 V directly at the battery terminals. Is your electrolyte up to the full mark?, or do you have a MF-AGM battery? Your voltage should increase with engine speed to 14-15 V at 4000-5000 rpm. If your voltage reads close to this your stator is probably OK.
lance will probably have more suggestions for you, but recently I read some threads regarding the tach sensor working off the front cylinder ignition coil and/or spark plug wires. One member whose tach wasn`t working had just repaired or replaced it, and had pinched some wires in the headlight bucket when reassembling.
Your mention of only 50% power makes me think the front cylinder is not firing and may have something to do with the tach not operating. It still does not explain all the other electrical problems though. Check that all plug wires are tight.
Pull the plugs and check condition for color, damaged electrode, carboned up or wet with gas or oil, etc. While they`re out check for spark too. You will be able to identify which cylinder is not firing.
Of all the things that go wrong with bikes and autos I hate chasing down electrical gremlins the worst. Good luck.
